After going thru some diagnostic chores, it was finally time to take the 14 back to Koji for some tuning. Hopefully, with the new cat and cleaned injectors, we could do a full boost tune without knocking.
Here’s the face Eric makes when it’s time to work on his car. Although gruesome, we must agree that this is how we all feel on the inside when it’s time to play the “mechanic game.” “What’s the ‘mechanic game,’ you say?” Well, it’s basically the game where we pretend we know everything about cars and end up braking more stuff than we repair or we repair the cars slower than ever anticipated.… Read the rest of this now >>
What’s it been, like… 1 or 2 years since the last update? LoL! I guess having broken cars and stuff has kept us out of the “game” for a little while, but we’re back to report on a project that’s been growing for some time now.

The New Year has come and brought us another weekend of problematic install. What we thought would go somewhat smooth went and took a detour. Fear not… we managed to tackle them and finished the install.

Ultra JDM Baller Guy Chin-Chin decided he wanted to pair a Nissan 350Z transmission with his SR20DET in his boro boro S13 build. What a cocky guy. Until this day, I had never seen a brand new transmission before. The first step of the process is to remove the bellhousing so it can be machined and reattached.… Read the rest of this now >>
By far the most expensive box I’ve opened in quite some time… Raj bought the KW V3 Coilovers, which have adjustable bump and separately adjustable rebound, making them a big notch above most of your bargain barrel made-in-taiwan suspensions. I just wish they came with their own tophats, but it looks like you need to buy the Club Sport model for that.… Read the rest of this now >>
Alright, so we’ve all been there. You go under your car to check some things out, and as you’re crawling out from there, you notice something nasty, and it’s not the gross chick that’s been stalking you around town — you notice a torn boot on one of your ball joints.… Read the rest of this now >>
